The Office alums reunite for brunch
Rainn Wilson, Creed Bratton, Angela Kinsey, Paul Liebertsein, Jenna Fischer, Brian Baumgartner, Leslie David Baker, Phyllis Smith, Oscar Nunez and Ed Helms gathered Sunday at the home of American Office creator Greg Daniels. During their reunion, they tried to re-create an old Office cast photo. "Some of the old gang got together today... it was so great to see everyone!" tweeted Angela Kinsey. "I turned to Ed and said, “I feel like we are at a family reunion.” He smiled and said, 'We are.'" The reunion came two weeks after several cast members reunited for Steve Carell hosting SNL. Carell, who wasn't able to attend because he's in London, tweeted: "Miss you guys."

The Office alums pop up on SNL to pressure Steve Carell to do a revival
Carell's former cast members Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms and Jenna Fischer were all in the audience for his opening monologue on last night's Saturday Night Live. It was Carell's first time hosting since leaving The Office. “People would really love to see an Office reboot," said Kemper. "Because I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve." Helms told Carell, who was promoting his new movie Beautiful Boy, that a potential reboot would bring in so much money “you wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies.” Fischer added: “Don’t be a d*ck, Steve. Do the reboot!'” The bit also included Carell's wife, Nancy Carell (née Walls), who appeared on The Office as Michael Scott's realtor and who herself was an SNL cast member in the 1995-96 season. Carell reacted to his former Office cast members by saying what he's been saying for a while: “I don’t think it’s the best idea. I think we should just leave it alone."

How Splitting Up Together avoids the pitfalls of romantic sitcoms
Source: TV Guide
"The issue with sitcoms focused only on a couple's romantic end game is that there is no mystery in seeing two leads — that you already know are endgame — meet for the first time," says Megan Vick. "The hi-jinx in the middle might be funny or charming but you can't build tension when you already know the outcome. Splitting Up Together is different because Lena and Martin don't have to find their way back to each other. There is a will-they-won't-they question at the center of Splitting Up Together, but Marin and Lena's respective journeys of self-discovery are the actual story."

ABC's Splitting Up Together is a fantasy version of divorce -- a mainstream version of HBO's Divorce
Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson star in a divorce comedy in which they "come across mostly as generic TV people with typical TV people problems," says Jen Chaney. She adds: "While there are some funny lines and moments sprinkled throughout the initial four episodes... the characters are pretty one-dimensional and the stakes never seem as high as they should on a show that explores one of life’s most stressful events."
